SweetDeal: Representing Agent Contracts With Exceptions using XML Rules, Ontologies, and Process Descriptions

Benjamin Grosof, Terrence C. Poon
2003 Social Science Research Network  
SweetDeal is a rule-based approach to representation of business contracts that enables software agents to create, evaluate, negotiate, and execute contracts with substantial automation and modularity.  ...  First, we newly extend the previous SweetDeal e-contracting approach to incorporate ontology knowledge, specifically ontologies about business processes, and show how that is useful to represent provisions  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Thanks to our MIT Sloan colleagues Mark Klein, Chrysanthos Dellarocas, Thomas Malone, Peyman Faratin, and John Quimby, as well as Abraham Bernstein, for useful  ...

Applying Semantic Web Rules to Business-to-Business Negotiation

Hsun-Ming Lee, Yu-Liang Chi, Mayur R. Mehta
2007 Contemporary Management Research  
Negotiation automation deals with business processes that frequently require the input of human knowledge to achieve their goal -that of agreement in negotiations.  ...  This study investigates the Electronic Business using Extensible Markup Language (ebXML) platform and introduces a rule base by which negotiation parties can dynamically communicate the logic of their  ...  The semantic Web rules, which represent human logic, allow the negotiation agents to exchange documents and make strategic decisions with rules.  ...

Communication design for electronic negotiations on the basis of XML schema

Michael Ströbel
2001 Proceedings of the tenth international conference on World Wide Web - WWW '01  
Furthermore, XML Schema is suggested as the mechanism for the runtime representation of the logical space and the validation of actual negotiations from a syntactical and semantical perspective.  ...  However, an explicit negotiation design can also address what is commonly referred to as the ontology problem of electronic negotiations: how can one ensure that the negotiating parties have the same understanding  ...  , and Achille Fokoue Nkoutche for XML Schema troubleshooting.  ...

Semantic Technologies for E-Government: An Overview [chapter]

Tomáš Vitvar, Vassilios Peristeras, Konstantinos Tarabanis
2009 Semantic Technologies for E-Government  
Such differences are related to a great variety of computerbased solutions used at various levels and create the requirement for technical, content, and process integration.  ...  Semantics, in the context of information systems, allows for a rich description of information or behavioural models that improve application processing, integration, and performance.  ...  The authors show how to semantically enrich processes' models with business rules in order to achieve flexibility through automation that better deal with exceptional, and unpredictable situations.  ...
